WWE fired William Regal: an era ends at NXT

WWE fired William Regal

The old incarnation of NXT definitely ceases to exist. Yesterday WWE fired William Regal and several producers and coaches of the brand's old guard, including "Road Dogg" Jesse James. All loyal to Triple H and its original vision of the product.

This is a real end to an era: William Regal, in fact, he held the position of General Manager of NXT since 2014. The list of cuts also includes referee and producer Scott Armstrong, Performance Center coach Hideki Suzuki, Timothy Thatcher, Danny Burch and Cathy Corino.

For several months now Vince McMahon has decided to make a rebranding of the show, changing format, presentation and superstar. The new course of NXT 2.0 began in effect with New Year's Evil (here the complete results) where the very young Bron Breakker ousted Tommaso Ciampa, becoming the champion.

What will the future of NXT be?

In the light of recent events, it is clear that WWE wants to return to treating NXT as a development brand for the new generation, avoiding contracting superstars who have had a background in the independents.

Decision which undoubtedly led Kyle O'Reilly to join AEW and which, according to some, could also lead Johnny Gargano to follow in his footsteps. Both played a vital role at NXT and were among William Regal's proteges.

Gargano himself, in fact, wanted to publicly thank Regal for giving him and many other independent stars the opportunity to shine in WWE.

If it wasn't for William Regal a lot of your favorite guys wouldn't be on television. He got so many of us "indie guys" an opportunity. He will never take credit for that, but he deserves his flowers for helping and molding this generation of wrestlers. #ThankYouRegal pic.twitter.com/ib8GFIHHzE
